A mapping approach to synchronization in the ” Zajfman trap ” . II : the observed bunch

We extend a recently introduced mapping model, which explains the bunching phenomenon in an ion beam resonator for two ions [Geyer, Tannor, J. Phys. B 37 (2004) 73], to describe the dynamics of the whole ion bunch. We calculate the time delay of the ions from a model of the bunch geometry and find that the bunch takes on a spherical form at the turning… CONTINUE READING
